  • <ateam> (mdas, jgriffin, ahal, wlach) - updated 12/04
    • This week:
    • Emulator unit tests:
      • xpcshell tests running on TBPL on cedar with a few problems; should make the Dec 10 deadline
      • work on adding more mochitests, reftests, and xpcshell tests will continue past Dec 10; this is conditional on addressing the linux32 slave issues in buildbot
      • There is an occasional b2g crash (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=814551), and an occasional emulator crash (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=802877), that are making sheriffing difficult for these tests; what can we do about these?
    • Gaia smoke tests on pandas
      • No major blocking Marionette issues, although there are several issues that affect individual tests or small groups of tests
      • Big issue is that we still can't connect to Marionette remotely (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=800138). We used to be able to get around this by loading Marionette later in the startup cycle, but this no longer works. Need help debugging!
    • Performance tests
      • Ted is working on a patch to allow us to get raw app load times on a panda board
      • Will is working on getting fps measurements with Eideticker, but is having a lot of problems with B2G stability on pandas. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=817730.
    • All panda-related work is at risk for Dec 10.
    • We're also being hit with partner requests (e.g., https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=816099) which is impacting the amount of time we have to spend on other goals
    • Last week:
    • rolled out a new stable update today
    • ahal is working on expanding set of reftests being run on TBPL
    • ahal is working on adding support for running xpcshell tests in TBPL
    • malini, myself and others continue to work on supporting WebQA's automation of gaia smoke tests by fixing Marionette bugs and implementing enhancements
    • several people are working with rel-eng to try and get gaia smoke tests in running on pandas by Dec 10
      • have pref based work around for bug 800138, still need to follow up on what the right fix should be to start marionette after final-ui-startup but running with system context
      • Have fix for pandas do not boot with network enabled
      • Mozpool ready for roll out.
  • <QA team> (Geo, Jason, Tony)

BLOCKERS

    • 7 B2G and Gaia blockers: http://bit.ly/TAV5A4
      • Packaged apps still broken out of process
    • awaiting mozilla packaged - Bug 815781 - Upload .zip for unagi/otoro builds containing all files required for flashing
      • Preloaded apps story is still ambigious

STATUS

    • verified Releng infrastructure for unagi/otoro single and multilocale builds
    • verified dogfood builds moving to beta channel
    • Script to help with unattended triage of mochitests mostly finished: http://people.mozilla.com/~gmealer/triage-mochi.bash
      • Walks mochitest tree
      • Runs each test singly, saving the result to a tree of logs mirroring the test tree
      • Kills the framework, cleans it up, moves to next test
      • Framework kill necessary because single test runs never exit in B2G mochitest: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=780034
      • Right now, requires manual review of the log files, but very quick to flip through them.
      • TODO: scan test results to auto-build candidate list. Still collecting failure patterns
    • Have already triaged /caps, /docshell, /content, found many candidates. Will be adding passing results to TBPL run; would like to run in parallel first if possible to make sure no oranges.
    • Processing /dom with this script this week. Takes ~3 days straight to run for that many testfiles, as test files take 1.5-2min each to run due to framework setup cost and there are a few thousand files.
    • Gave a first shot at modifying mochitest framework to centrally set test permissions. Loading method did not work; taking second shot this week. Would appreciate active dev support if contacted.
      • Concern - Weird payments feature with a certified API (WebSMS) for web payment providers through mozPay - should we even do this?
    • Last week:

BLOCKERS

    • Regressions, regressions, regressions. Smoketest bugs are still hovering around ~16 a day, with some still not being commented or resolved within 24 hours. What can we do to continue driving priority on fixing these?

STATUS

    • QA tested a tinderbox build for unagi
    • platform bugs are being bb-'d if its unagi only? (photo preview issue, busted geolocation-bug 815217)
    • Status on bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=812396
      • Can we get this in as part of the build process ?
    • Logging discussion from earlier this week: default to no logs affects only Gaia logs? What about dogfooders?
    • Continuing to manually triage existing mochitests for addition into the manifest running on TBPL. Have found a significant number in /layout, a few elsewhere. Some fruit, slow going.
    • Working on automated method to walk the mochitests, execute file-by-file, and find passing candidates for inclusion. Spidering tests is easy, but framework hangs at the end of single test runs so execution is a little more complicated due to that.
    • dclarke driving effort to get permissions handling for functional API testing centralized into the mochitest harness. A-Team is providing harness knowledge, need more help from dev for B2G knowledge (fabrice?): https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=814140
    • Progress continues on permissions testing w/ Security Assurance. Patches starting to show up on Bugzilla. Suite 1 & 3: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=811141 and Suite 2: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=815105
    • Apps - supported defining preloaded apps scope, including the testing piece, burning down exploratory testing. Getting ramped up on privileged app testing.
  • <Release Engineering> (aki, joduinn, hwine) - Updated on Dec04
  • This week:
    • Builds+Updates
      • [pending response] full emulator builds in releng's hands by dec10? akeybl will respond, not needed by dec10
      • [done?] manifest publishing -- response to come in Releases Meeting email thread? dietrich hasn't heard anything
    • Multilocale
      • [Unassigned blocker] gaia profile black in multilocale builds https://bugzil.la/817170
        • Does Fabrice have enough information to debug this?
      • otoro, unagi, panda gaia multilocale builds blocked on https://bugzil.la/818032
        • Stas has a loaner buildslave to try to debug this
      • Axel landed gecko-multilocale build Makefile changes; pending review for packaging steps in https://bugzil.la/817197

        • "So currently, the Marionette socket never stays open if force-local is false, no matter how late we start it, even if we wait 5 minutes after boot. This seems to indicate that something has changed in the last few weeks, since this didn't used to be the case."
      • Need gaia smoketests zipped up as part of build https://bugzil.la/817040
      • Can't currently install builds from pvtbuilds onto Pandas: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=818329

  • Dogfooding and sending feedback summaries
  • Mobile redeisgn is landing and looking good
  • Action on the in-product links to support from Settings, thanks for the help there
  • Eveything.me will contribute help articles and forum support to SUMO per verbal agreement last week
  • TEF cancelled our meeting this week, so no new SLA progress
  • Starting training documentation outlines and scheduling
  • Based on 'second freeze' features coming in, I'd like to plan on conducting doc reviews during the last weeks of November, so we can incorporate all changes in early Dec.
